Join us as Karen A. Daley, President of the American Nurses Association, shares her journey from clinical nurse to patient and advocate. Daley will discuss the importance of caring for patients holistically from the perspective of caregiver and health care consumer. She will present a broad view of health that transcends the strictly physical, encompassing the psycho-social-economic dimensions of wellbeing as well as addressing the limitations of the current health care system. There will be a reception following the lecture in the Setterberg Lounge, 2nd floor. Contact Kat Tokarz 617-353-2705 for more details or to request special accommodations. The Meredith E. Drench Lectureship Fund, Sargent College’s first endowed lecture series, was established by Dr. Drench to share her passion and belief in “compassionate rehabilitation” of the whole person.
